Reporting Justice: A Handbook on Covering War Crimes Courts

Whatever drives you to report on justice, you need to have the tools to do it. That is what this handbook sets out to provide. It is intended for journalists undertaking one of the most challenging, important and potentially rewarding of tasks: reporting on the trials of war crimes suspects or investigating war crimes on the ground.

War crimes reporting, like any journalistic specialisation, makes its own demands and has its own rules. The historical background, procedures and law must be understood.
